Spire is a 5-piece heavy metal / thrash band from Belleville Illinois. We have a very creative and varied sound. Spire consists of Jason Schumaker, Chad Miller, Ian Moore, Rick Barriger, and John Mueller. Our debut CD, "...remain calm..." will be released March 1, 2002 on Accomplice Records. It contains some very intense, heavy rhythms varied with beautiful acoustic passages and graceful melodies. We play many shows around greater St. Louis, MO., so keep posted for more information.
